This might be the most overlooked announcement to come from D23 Expo, in my opinion. Disney has announced a brand new restaurant to be built next to the existing Mission: SPACE, bringing guests into outer space.
This is a big announcement for a few reasons. It’s been a long time since Disney has created an original restaurant for an original attraction featuring an original story! It’s been even longer since one has been built at Walt Disney World’s Epcot.
The new restaurant looks like it will be a nicer restaurant, probably requiring a reservation to eat. The walls feature giant screens or projections, making guests feel like they are floating through space. It also looks like astronauts will be floating through, saying hello as you eat a nice meal.
